Several medical associations are urging the U.S. surgeon general, Dr. Jerome Adams, to issue a warning over transgender surgeries for children.
The letter to Dr. Adams was penned by the American College of Pediatricians.
ACP executive director Dr. Michelle Cretella tells OneNewsNow that sex-change hormones and life-altering surgeries are not backed by scientific research. Instead, children are subjected to sterility, blood clots, strokes, malignancy, elevated rates of suicide, and more.
"There is no science,” she insists, “to establish that this is safe or effective in children."
Medical groups in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Sweden have also issued warnings, she says, and that takes courage to do so because it means standing up to far-left, trans-affirming activists.
"These physicians who are standing up and going against the tide,” she says, “are risking their very careers and social standing."
